LD150 Scrambler

Scrambler-2nteresting scrambler on eBay, no visible frame numbers, so it will have to remain an “off-roader”, but it’s got visible engine numbers. The fish-tail exhaust is pretty cool!

Vespa “Sei Giorni” Race Replica

SeiGiorni-2

I don’t normally post Vespa’s. This is a Lambretta blog!  But this I spotted a pic of this gorgeous machine on Twitter, and found a few more online. And it’s a superb looking machine, completley up my strasse. It’s for sale on eBay at the moment, in Germany.

I don’t know anything about it, other than it is called a “Sei Giorni” Race Replica… Now, my limited Italian translates “Sei Giorni” as Six Days, and that automatically get me thinking of the Scottish 6 Day Trials, but I may be completely off beam here. There were probably a ton of 6 Day Competitions back in the day. Any Vespa enthusiasts / knowledgable scooter sport historians on here can shed any more light? Please let me know in the comments.

There’s a german website address on the eBay page, but it doesn’t seem to work for me.
I’ll include it in case you have more luck http://www.scooterequipment.de

Normal Lambretta Service will be resumed shortly.

Vintage footage of Lambrettas racing at Thruxton


This great bit of scootering history has just been posted on YouTube… The Lambretta Club of Great Britain racing at the Thruxton circuit in Hampshire, back in 1969. I’m assuming they hired the circuit for the day… they seem like they had a decent membership back in the day! The footage features several  names that may be familiar to aficionados of the racing scene, Roy Bradford, Nev Frost, and the Ronald Brothers.

GP225WildCat has posted a number of other South Devon Lambretta Club vids on YouTube, all of which are well worth checking out! There is even more great stuff over at the Retrobubble website, mainly from the late ’50s to the 70’s, but some 80’s stuff too. All available to buy on DVD. As I have only just discovered this site myself, a full ‘review’ will be forthcoming, shortly!

Scooter Racing at the Isle of Man, 1970

Another great video from YouTube, featuring Scooters, and the Isle of Man. The last one I posted was from 1959… and it seems a world away from 1970, with those space age Luna lines…
